Abu Dhabi’s Millennium opens Madinah airport hotel

The property hopes to serve pilgrims and regular travellers

Abu Dhabi’s Millennium Hotels and Resorts has announced the opening of a new hotel in the Saudi holy city of Madinah.

The 227-room Millennium Madinah Airport is located next to Prince Mohammad Bin Abdulaziz Airport and designed to cater to pilgrims and tourists.

It includes four meeting spaces able to host 75 guests, an all-day dining restaurant, executive lounge, casual restaurant and an outdoor terrace café.

“We are confident that Millennium Madinah Airport will cater to all types of travellers especially now that new tourism attractions are being developed in line with the Saudi Vision 2030, which aims to increase the number of pilgrims and Umrah visitors,” said general manager Murad Al-Sabbah.

“With our five-star hospitality standards, we ensure comfort and ease for our guests, whether they are here on vacation, performing their religious journeys, visiting relatives or traveling for business.”

International hotel operators are rapidly expanding in the kingdom amid a wider goal to attract 30 million visitors annually by 2030.
